Meniscal fixation is minimally invasive surgical procedure is used to reconstruct torn meniscus. Meniscus functions include distribution and load transmission, joint stability, neuromuscular proprioception and joint nutrition. Meniscal tears are symptomatic and irreparable and meniscal fixation devices are used to remove unstable fragments. Meniscal repair is performed only during longitudinal tears (>10 mm), tears without deformity or secondary degeneration, and others. Meniscal fixation devices are used arthroscopic repair or open surgery. Meniscal fixation devices include arrows, screws, darts, and other fasteners. The latest advancement of meniscal fixation device includes a hybrid of the peripheral anchor, suture, and Slipknot. These fixation devices are used for tensioning across the meniscal tear. In addition, they are flexible, and have a potential to move with meniscus and deform during any activities, and decreases the risk of chondral injury. Meniscal fixation devices are used for meniscus repair are of three types based on suture technique. They are inside-out, outside-in, and all inside. Inside-out technique is used to treat all types of tears with a potential risk of neurovascular incisions. The outside-in technique is used for middle and anterior thirds of the meniscus and this technique is used to decrease the risk of neurovascular incisions. All-inside repair technique for vertical longitudinal, unstable tears of the posterior meniscus.
Meniscal Fixation Devices Market: Drivers and Restraints
Increasing demand due to the Meniscal Fixation Devices due to rising prevalence in developed countries drives the meniscal fixation devices. Recent advancement made it possible for the development of suture-based, flexible, allow for retention of the meniscal fixation devices and variable compression. Additionally, the demand for meniscal fixation devices is raising due to manufacturers continue to develop more user-friendly, cost-effective and safer devices which boosted the meniscal fixation devices. Recent advancements in bio-absorbable meniscal fixation devices lead to better clinical outcomes compared to traditional meniscal repair methods. All these factors act as driver for burgeoning growth of the meniscal fixation devices markets
Complications and failures of the meniscal repair limited the growth of the Meniscal Fixation Devices market.
